't need the tax loopholes to avoid laying off workers. >> claiming they should get harry reid to pass one of two house bills to block forced cuts. >> so for 16 months the president is travelling all over the country holding rallies instead of sitting down with senate leaders in order to try to forge an agreement over there in order to move the bill. >> we moved the bill twice. we should not move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass to begin to do something. >> reporter: the president put pressure on boehner to bring the local republican congressman aboard air force one where congressman told reporters in addition to spending cut he favors raising revenues through tax reform. >> a republican with me today. it's not always healthy for a republican but he is doing it because he knows it's important to you. he asked them to continue closing the tax loopholes instead of letting the tax cut go through. >> but boehner got air cover from mitch mcconnell who blasted the president's approach. >> he refused to offer a reasonable alternative and he threatened to veto other proposals aime
the american public when he can go one mile down and talk to harry reid. you know, look, we're talking about 85 billion dollars. we borrow 85 billion dollars every 25 days. all we're doing is taking what we cut for a month in less than a month. >> greta: did you agree with tom coburn that the crisis is made up? >> by far. we have more revenue in 2013 projected. what the president asks for, to take more from the american taxpayers, if you can't take the cut how can we put this place back in order. and many go back in 2009. were planes not flying there, were people not getting their first responders then? no, why is the president creating the hysteria when really we should get this government under control? >> why is he doing that, if he's doing that. >> because he's never gotten off the campaign trail and that's what's wrong, why i call him the road show president. the saddest part about all of this, and the divided government you achieve big things. you can't achieve something if he's out campaigning. you've got to be able to govern and lead. and we're willing to work with him, but he's got to
something. >> ifill: senate majority leader harry reid shot back. >> i think he should understand who is sitting on their pose tear i don't remember. we're doing our here to pass something. and the reason he's not bringing up something over there is because he can't pass it. he can't get his caucus to agree on anything. >> ifill: but republican senator roy blunt of missouri said democrats have to face facts. >> the spending cuts are going to happen. and the option now for the president is, do you want to work for a different way for these same savings to be achieved? and that's very do-able. >> ifill: friday is not the last deadline. another one looms in late march when government funding runs out. for more on whether political paralysis in washington is spilling over onto the economy, we turn to nariman behravesh, chief economist for i.h.s., a research and forecasting firm. we have heard in the last couple of days, weeks, surveys, polls that show that a lot of americans to the extent they're following this story do think there's a problem here with this so-called sequester but they d
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean? [mooing] >>brian: steve was recruited off the future farmers of america's rosters. >>steve: i was back in the day. >>gretchen: are you from kansas? >>steve: yes, i'm from kansas. >>alisyn: i didn't know you are on some sort of farmer's bulletin board. >>brian: then you married kathy, a city girl and brought her to the cou
was serious, he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> you know, willie, it strikes me not only the white house but liberals for a decade now have said if republicans were serious about the deficit, they would cut defense spending and they would come forward with tax increases. well, it looks like, as mike was talking about yesterday in this new york article, republicans are going to come forward and let these defense cuts go through. so republicans will, over the past three months compromise in defense spending and compromise in tax increases. so i think it's fair at this point to say, mr. president, show us your hand, because this is what we've been hearing for a decade. taxes have gone up and now we're going to cut pretty significantly from the pentagon's budget. your move, mr. president. >> he wants revenues to go up again and john boehner's response is, we just did that. >> that's the thing. we always heard, you guys raise taxes, cut defense spending and then we will come back with a compromise on spending cuts. but, no, we raise taxes, we come forward with pent
to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some
for a vote. and majority leader harry reid said monday the lew vote could be held as early as tomorrow. on the house side of capitol hill today speaker john boehner talked about the automatic budget cuts which will go into effect friday, the sequestration, if congress doesn't act. in his remarks he criticized senate democrats for delaying action to prevent the cuts. >> the president has known for 16 months that this sequester was looming out there when the super-committee failed to come to an agreement. and so for 16 months the president has been traveling all over the country holding rallies instead of sitting down with senate leaders and in order to try to forge an agreement over there in order to move the bill. we have moved the bill in the house twice. we should not have to move a third bill before the senate gets off their ass and begins to do something. >> house speaker john boehner this morning, had remarks by president obama to the defense community. he is into newport news at about. >> people were traveling. either traveling for fun or traveling, looking for a job. make they w
was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we should not have to act the third time before the senate begins to do their work. guest: speaker boehner was the chairman of the education committee when i sat on there when i first came to the congress. he is usually a very reasonable person. i think some of that was a little bit of politics. i do not seek the president using our armed men and women as props. certainly, i think there is some gamesmanship going on by both sides the bottom line is -- and both sides could the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start to make smart cuts -- both sides. the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start making smart cuts. if we need to save defense, if we cannot cut deeply to defense, then sit down with us and decide how much from defense is really fat and waste right now, and let's figure out how we make up the rest of that money. that is called a new rev
of the house of representatives, and for him to say the president and harry reid ought to get together and come up with a solution. to me he is insulting himself. >> stephanie: yeah. >> but the other thing is that the republican conference and the house of representatives enacted the sequester. >> stephanie: right. >> 170-something members it would not have passed without him -- >> stephanie: but congressman he is said it's the president's sequester hashtag. >> i know, and i didn't know the president has a vote in the congress. >> stephanie: yeah. there are a lot of people talk about all of the ways the sequester will impact people's lives, and charlie pierce was on, and he wrote a great piece about this is all local news has time to cover. so democrats have already won the pr, you know battle here so how do you see this playing out by friday? >> well, i still think we're going to get some kind of delay in the sequester. i think ultimately -- the rational thing will ultimately happen at the very last minute after every other absurd solution is abandoned. >> steph
the sound bite from majority leader harry reid but he said he grew up in a town filled with brothels. you know he's from nevada near las vegas area and so he's used to quote salty language and so this didn't offend him but he said, wolf, that the speaker should know who is sitting on their posterior. if this is the language they are using before the cuts go into effect this may be a more exciting story. >> how effective has the president been in delivering this hard hitting message basically totally blaming the republicans for refusing to compromise? >> well, the goal here is to make this really feel, make americans realize how much this will hit home and how much the budget cuts will impact their own pocketbook. the latest polling shows that's had mixed results. right now 60, 6-0 percent of americans believe these forced spending cuts will hurt the overall economy. only 30% think it will have a major impact on their own personal finances. and politicians, insiders, both democrats and republicans tell me they think more americans have to really feel it in the pocketbook before democrats a
